I replaced my drivers' side motor with an OEM-replacement unit from the parts store. It works fine; although, not lightning quick. Some people recommend spraying (lightly) some silicone along the side rails / window tracks, to help them lift up.

If you are hearing excessive 'grinding' when the window moves up and down, your nylon "window lift" belt may be chewed up. Kind of hard to do, but who knows? If you open the door panel, you may be able to inspect it "somewhat" through the holes in the door shell.
